I recently purchased the Ultimate GPS Logger Shield. Walking through the tutorial, I soldered the headers, tested the direct and soft serial functions and everything worked along the way. However once I got to the SD Logging page and ran the unedited 'shield_sdlog' example, I got an error:
I am connecting to an Arduino Uno R3 with an external antenna with the switch set to 'Soft. Serial'. No jumper wires are currently being used. The library I installed is the 'Adafruit GPS Library' version 1.3. I also followed the tutorial to download, uncompress and rename the SD card library from the github (moving the old SD library into a backup folder).Ultimate GPSlogger Shield
Couldnt create GPSLOG00.TXT
So far I have tried a 64 GB SD card that was forced to fat32 format but ultimately switched to a SanDisk 16 GB fat32 formatted card. I am able to run the SD example 'ReadWrite' and confirm that the Arduino is able to Read and Write the "test.txt" file to the card.
When I run the SD example 'CardInfo' the following information is printed:
Please help me complete my project and get this GPS to log the data to the card.Initializing SD card...
